Default Newbie from San Antonio, TX

Hello to everyone here at LS1tech. I've been signed up for a while but never put up an introduction before. Had some time and thought I'd introduce myself. I'm also signed up on the San Antonio F-Body website as well. I currently own 2 TA's. I figured since I don't have any kids "why not". I have a Black 2000 TA that will be finished this year if everything keeps going well. I also have a 2002 SOM Ram Air with a MS3 from Texas Speed, KOOK'S stainless steel headers and a X-pipe built by Lethal Performance here in San Antonio. I'm kind of new to all this so if someone could please tell me how to post pics on here that would be greatly appreciated. Again, hello to everyone and hope to hear from some of you soon. Peace out and everyone be safe!!!!

Thanks for the welcome JMBLOWNWS6. I also left you a message in the San Antonio F-body website. Yeah I finally got the TA back from the paint shop. It's blue black, and when the sun is out you can really see the blue. The blue gives the black depth to make it stand out. I'll bring it by next time. I took it a few weeks ago to the shop and everyone saw it. Now I just need to finish the motor part and I'm good to go. See ya when I see ya. I'll probably go to dyno day before work, so I'll see ya there. Gonna take the SOM out for a spin.

Yes sir from what I understand. It was Greg's car, but I did not know him. I really liked the car when I saw I did what I had to do to buy it, and the rest is history. I still take it to Lethal for maintence. It runs really strong and drives really well. Everyone tells me that he took very good care of it. I really don't get to go to the track on weekends. Just on wednesdays, and if I know in advance about midnight madness I ask for that day off and I usually take the SOM instead of my black TA. I am very pleased with the car and I'm taking good care of it. Thanks again for everyones welcome so far, and hope to talk to some of you soon. Peace out!!!!

It's a gem of a car!

I was stopping at the Exxon on Culebra outside 410
@ 3am on the way to work a few months ago,
and I could have swore that I saw/heard your SOM beast
going down Culebra away from the loop....

Must have been your I'm assuming?

Yeah that was probably me. I hang out Fast Eddies all the time and it's just up the street from Exxon on Culebra. Yeah the car is really sweet and I'm glad I bought it. It drives strong I like to get on it sometimes driving down 90. I love ripping through the gears.

If theres is anyone else who like to play darts. I go to Fast Eddies on Culebra. Only been playing about 3 months. Really just to have fun and hangout with my friends at the bar. I have a dart league tonight around 8.

From what everyone tells me. It puts down 420. Don't remember the torque though. Like I said I've only had the car a few months. I'm gonna dyno it at Lethal. So I'll have official numbers for ya soon. Magic Stick 3, KOOK'S longtube headers and an X-pipe with dynomax bullets. It's a head turner coming down the road, I'll tell ya that.
